Press corps CW on Sonia SotomayorThe San Francisco Chronicle's Carolyn Lochhead is the most reliable stenographer of press corps conventional wisdom of whom I'm aware. I generally take her articles as a clear exposition of the press corps scripts of the moment, whatever the topic.
You can see her take on Obama's Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor in Nominee's path to Supreme Court looks clear 05/27/09.
By the 10th paragraph, she gets around to telling us something about the judge's actual judicial record. The first nine are all process talking, which side is saying what about her.
I you want to the press CW on any issue, going to SFGate.com and searching for Lochhead's stories on it is a useful place to start.
